Fossilized dinosaur bones

2006 - Dueling dinosaurs discovered // 2006

Dinosaur prospectors discover the Triceratops eroding from sedimentary rock of the Hell Creek Formation, an exciting find on its own. During excavation, the tyrannosaur is discovered and the moniker Dueling Dinosaurs is born. Both skeletons are carefully extracted, stabilized in secure plaster and burlap cradles and stored in a protected facility. Initial fossil preparation is conducted for identification.
